While hundreds of Metaverse crypto coins are on the market, many projects don’t have a Minimum Viable Product and are built on hype. On the other hand, several Metaverse games have an active and growing users base and are leading the adoption of blockchain tech. This article looks at the top five most popular Metaverse Crypto Coins, ordered by 30-day users, lowest to highest.
5. Sunflower Farmers (Polygon) – 480k
Launched in January 2022, Sunflower Farmers is an NFT Metaverse farming game featuring the play-to-earn model built on Polygon.
Originally started as a side project by a group of friends, Sunflower Famers is currently one of the fastest-growing Metaverse crypto coins gaining over 400k users within weeks.
Unfortunately, when the game grew exponentially, it was abused by malicious actors who botted the game. To combat the cheaters, Sunflower Farmers took a snapshot of players’ balances, and all the data will be transferred to a new version of the game.
The team behind the project is still working on the game, recently releasing an AMA for January 2022.

You can purchase SFF tokens if you want to bet on the future of this project. Currently, SFF is available to buy on QuickSwap and MEXC.
4. Splinterlands (Hive / WAX) – 599k
Launched in March 2021, Splinterlands is a blockchain-based collectible trading card game built on the WAX and Hive blockchains. Hive is a next-generation fast and scalable blockchain for Web3, and WAX is a leading blockchain for some of the most popular Metaverse crypto coins on the market.
Splinterlands is similar to traditional trading card games like Hearthstone. However, Splinterlands provides full ownership to its players for all in-game assets.
One cool feature about Splinterlands is users can rent cards for pennies per day if they need specific cards to add to their deck to play. The game features a native utility token called SPS, which is used as the native currency in the game.

To start playing, users must purchase a Bomb Hero NFT, costing roughly $50 at the time of writing.
As one of the most popular Metaverse crypto coins on the market, Bomb Crypto is worth checking out if you’re looking to get your foot in the door with NFTs and blockchain tech. In addition, the low entry cost is perfect for new users looking to experience NFT gaming first hand.
